I just found a great YT video that shows Cura 15.04.06.

I downloaded it and I simply love it.

It is fast and has "Split object into parts".

 

Both speed and this feature are missing in Cura 5.

 

I wonder what is happening here. Why is the 3 years old version version 15.04.06, and the latest one (I guess it's the current actively maintained version) is only version 5?

 

Thank you!

    Originally the version numbers of Cura were based on the year and month of the release of the version. So version 15.04 was originally released in april of 2015 (quite a bit longer than 3 years ago). When the frontend of Cura was completely rewritten, the version numbering was "reset" to something more "semantic", starting from Cura 2.x.

     

    The "Split object into parts" functionality can be added back into Cura 5.x with the Mesh Tools plugin from the Marketplace. There are other plugins in the Marketplace that you may like too.

     

    Ofcourse if you feel that 15.4 is better, feel free to use that version. It is more than 7 years old though.
